For this weekend, Valentine’s Day included, try the second annual Graffiti Art Exhibit presented by Urban Arts.
Graffiti has come a long way. From the acts of vandalism to wall murals to the medium of aerosol art. As a result it has moved from walls to canvas.
If you’ve had enough of hearts and flowers, try arts and aerosol.
The exhibit is aerosol art on canvas, presented by Urban Arts. For the show, they’ve gathered canvases from aerosol painters around Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and El Paso
